2010 Wrath Pinot Noir, McIntyre Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands
The McIntyre Vineyard is one of our favorite sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands. It consistently produces Pinot Noirs that transcend the standard definition we all attach to the varietal. This 2010 stands out for its pure fruit-driven character. The primary aromatics are strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb pie. The palate continues with ripe berries, soft tannins and a dash of background oak. The overall emphasis here is on elegance rather than sheer power.
